We’ve Got A Hat!

So, I knit the hat in about three evenings, as follows: the first evening I knit the seed stitch rim, the second eve, the stockinette part before the decreases, and today, the third evening, I knit all the decreases and finished the hat. And it fits, and the colour is lovely (pictures don’t make justice to it, no matter if I take them with daylight or flash).

It was a fairly quick knit, and very easy. I enjoyed it so much! And now my ears won’t freeze, since it covers them too :-)

The Hat
The hat!
  • Pattern: Kittyville Hat, from SnB Handbook – earflaps and kittyears removed.
  • Yarn: Pure New Wool, DK weight. One 50 gr. / 67 m. (approx.) skein in Incan Forest.
  • Gauge: 17.5 stitches to 10 cm in stockinette.
  • Needles: 4.5 mm double point needles
  • Finished Measures: Adult size

Notes: I liked the Kittyville hat a lot, but once I had the hat done, I liked it so much without earflaps or kittyears that I’m going to use it this way. I have three more skeins, so I can make a real Kittyville hat if I want! Also, the pattern asks to use a 40cm. circular needle to start the hat and then switch to double point needles, but making it all on dpn’s works as fine.
